New Energy market report from Business Monitor International: "Thailand Power Report Q4 2014"
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2014 -- We are maintaining our short- and long-term forecasts for the Thai power sector this quarter as key factors supporting our forecasts remain in play. We note the Thai government is in the midst of revamping the privileges and regulations for the renewable energy sector, which is in line with our positive outlook for the sector.
We are maintaining our 2014 electricity generation growth forecast for Thailand at 2.9% this quarter as key factors supporting our forecasts remain in play. The largest source of generation growth in the year will come from thermal generation, followed by non-hydropower renewable generation. We are also maintaining our long-term forecasts for the Thai electricity sector this quarter and forecast generation to grow an average of 3.6% per annum between 2014 and 2023. Growth will be primarily driven by non-hydropower renewables generation and coal-fired generation as we see limited scope for growth in gas-fired generation.
